49ers sign Nick Bellore to two-year deal

The 49ers just announced they have sign Nick Bellore to a two-year deal. Bellore was an undrafted free agent in 2011. He played the first four seasons of his career with the New York Jets. The Niners list Bellore as a linebacker, but he has made just three tackles on defense during his career. He is a […]

Three value options for the 49ers’ first-round pick

This is my Thursday column. Don’t lick that envelope just yet, Trent. I know you like to lock in your draft pick early. You wanted A.J. Jenkins so bad in 2012, you wrote his name on a piece of paper and sealed it an envelope days before you picked him. Your conviction was impressive, even […]

Concussions and the dizzying array of misinformation

This is my Monday column on brain trauma in football. And this is a video the Seahawks use to teach tackling. The justifiable concern about brain damage in football borders on hysteria. This is especially true after Chris Borland recently announced his retirement after just one season in the NFL. He was worried about brain damage. […]

49ers waive Jonathan Martin

The 49ers just announced they have waived offensive tackle Jonathan Martin. Erik Pears replaces Martin as the 49ers’ backup offensive tackle. Last summer, the 49ers acquired Martin from the Miami Dolphins in exchange for a conditional 2015 7th-round pick.

Grading the 49ers’ offensive line: Past and present

The San Francisco 49ers had the best offensive line in the NFL when they played in the Super Bowl a couple of years ago. Here’s how I grade that offensive line player by player: LT Joe Staley: A. The best offensive tackle in the league in 2012. LG Mike Iupati: A-. One of the best […]

Grading the 49ers’ best players

How many players on the 49ers deserve an “A” or “A-” grade? I count six. Here’s my list, and I’m eager to read yours. Aldon Smith: A-. The best pass rusher in the NFL from 2011 to 2013, and a bad pass rusher in 2014. Suspended for the first nine games last season. When he […]

Giants without Pagan all hope, no plan

This is my Sunday column on Angel Pagan. WARNING — this is a baseball column. 49ers fans, feel free to skip this. The Giants need a backup plan to back up their backup plan. Angel Pagan was supposed to replace Hunter Pence in the middle of the Giants’ batting order when Pence broke his arm. […]

Which player(s) in the draft could take the 49ers to the playoffs next season?

Jayson Braddock–the man who reported Colin Kaepernick is on the trading block–believes Amari Cooper, Danny Shelton, Randy Gregory or Kevin Johnson could take the Niners to the playoffs. That’s if one of those prospects falls to pick No.15. I disagree with Braddock. If the Niners are going to return the to the playoffs, they need to […]

I agree with Grant. The offensive line was a real problem last year. Who knows if Iupati was the main problem, but he ... - Wilson

Chris Borland is retiring from football to avoid long-term head trauma, according to ESPN Outside the Lines. Borland is 24. In the report, Borland is quoted as saying, “Is this how I’m going to live my adult life, banging my head, especially with what I’ve learned and knew about the dangers?” I admire and respect […]
